If you want to enjoy an abundant life—including a beautiful home (or homes), automobiles for yourself and your family, a great education for your children (and yourself) and a business that provides you with profits, royalties, rents or other residual income—financial literary is key.

For the past thirty years I have been working with people in different parts of the world through our programs, including Money & You®, to uncover what holds people back from having money, building successful businesses or achieving financial success. Over and over again, what comes up is that we must clear our consciousness from emotional blocks in order to receive the level of abundance we desire or to enjoy the financial resources we may already have.

Being educated about the basics of money—how to start, manage, build and expand a business—is key. It is my hope that in the near future, financial literacy becomes a subject for children in primary school, along with reading, writing, grammar, math and all other key subjects necessary to be a fully educated, functioning human being.

In the mean time, most of us learn to be financially literate without proper guidance, sheerly by trial and error. The result is a society riddled with debt, fearful of the future, investing in ventures we know very little about, or enslaved to jobs or businesses that bring us very little profit or joy.

For those of us who wish to have more than our basic needs met and do not wish to live in debt, financial literacy is as important as breathing and having clean water and nutritious food. Having a sound understanding of financial systems allows us to grow our financial independence with much more ease and joy.

Become a great student of financial literacy to allow your dreams to come true. Learn the different systems and choose the one that works best for you. Be sure to call upon financial advisors who have succeeded in their area of endeavor; do what is congruent with your inner knowing and the knowledge you have gathered through your educational process.

Do not leave the task of building your wealth to others. While others—financial advisors and masters—may support you, ultimately you are responsible for your results. In our programs we say, “Education is the highest form of leverage.” Once you acquire the techniques and tools, you now must allow yourself to be wealthy by clearing any blocks that may be in the way of your dreams coming true. Herein lies the secret to financial health and wealth.
